🔰 Create a Setup so that you can ping Google but not able to ping Facebook from same system.


In our OS, we have a Routing Table that allows us to access the Internet.

A routing table is a set of rules that is used to determine where data packets traveling over an Internet Protocol (IP) network will be directed.

So, for doing this task, we need to edit the routing table so that we can ping Google but not Facebook.


Firstly, we are using a Redhat Enterprise Linux 8, running on a Virtual Box. Let’s move forward…

First of all, we need to attach a volume (virtual hard disk) with our VM on which we will be creating partitions.

Now, let’s get going.

Initial Creation of Partition

We will create a partition of 2Gb and then we will format it.


We know, in today’s world, we need to deal with Big Data on every front. Thus, we have a huge demand for processing a large volume of data in a short amount of time.

Here comes Hadoop, which possesses the power to process and store a huge amount of data, or simply, Big Data very easily. A Hadoop cluster is a collection of computing devices with some storage, known as nodes.

These nodes are networked together to perform computations parallelly on big data sets, working on multiple machines simultaneously. For processing any data, the client submits the data and program…

In this blog, our objectives are as follows -

🔅 Create an AWS EC2 instance
🔅 Configure the instance with Apache Webserver.
🔅 Download PHP application name “WordPress”.
🔅 As WordPress stores data at the backend in the MySQL Database server, therefore, you need to set up a MySQL server using AWS RDS service using Free Tier.
🔅 Provide the endpoint/connection string to the WordPress application to make it work.

So, let’s get going with the job in hand.

Launch an EC2 Instance on AWS

Firstly, we need to launch an EC2 Instance on AWS which we will use to configure Apache Webserver and run WordPress.

Launching the instance is very simple and is not…
